The second I saw there'd be a Grune figure, my interest tripled. I'll be getting him at least.
I'm enjoying the designs, I don't have a real problem with any other than Cheetara being a bit on the bland side. Otherwise I'm interested to see where they take it. Hopefully it'll be treated in the same way as the MOTU 2002 series.
By that I mean in tone/storytelling - not cancelled before it reached its full potential/messed up with variants.
I like the 'evolution' stages idea (although Pete Laird came up with it first for TMNT) as a way to try and keep the toyline fresh. It has however given me second thoughts about getting any of these because a possible better wave would be round the corner.
Mumm-Ra now has a sword to fight back with (and a scarab sheild) which makes duking it out with Lion-O slightly more fair. Hopefully this will lend to some good fight scenes in the cartoon as opposed to Mumm-Ra hovering, looking smug and keeping a safe distance.
